Silly Photos

The Fantasy Photo craft.
The Fantasy Photo craft.

Create fantastical photos featuring you and your friends -- it's easy with the technique that follows.


­This photo craft project lets you be as goofy as you want. You can place some friends upside down, mix around the faces and bodies, cut faces into funny shapes, or put your subjects in silly environments.

What You'll Need:

  • Camera
  • Color film
  • Tape measure
  • Blunt scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Poster board

Step One: Plan a setting for your story. Think of a scene where there are lots of people doing different things, such as a circus or a football game.

Step Two: Have a family member or friend take several pictures of you dressed as the different parts of the story. For the circus, pose as a ringmaster, an acrobat, a clown, and even a lion. Dress up in costumes to fit the roles.

Step Three: When the film is developed, cut your pictures out and glue them on a piece of poster board. Draw a circus scene with three rings, a trapeze, balls to juggle, a lion, and more.

Keep your silly photos -- and your treasured pictures -- in a personalized collage. On the next page, you can discover how.
